It's been an interesting year so far. I've lost both my Moms. My mother died in January after a long decline. Soon after, my Mother-in-Law went in for bypass surgery. While her heart healed, other issues zapped her strength and she died April 22.

I may have challenge update posts but I don't know when I'll be posting regularly or when I'll get to visit everyone who is working on the challenges I'm hosting.

What books are on your shelf waiting for "Someday"?

I follow The Boston Bibliophile in my blog roll. The title of her post really caught my attention,  "Someday" Books or Literary Dust Bunnies. Her post was a jump from The BookArista but Literary Dust Bunnies came from Marie and really hit me.


Can you see them? Those thick ones. Or just an uncomfortable subject. Recommended but forgotten. Sitting on the top shelf where you always see them but never look. Did you just see a tail?


I  commented that Life of Pi is one of my dust bunnies. I'm sure I've still got it, it sat there forever, falling deeper and deeper into the dark recesses of the book shelf. I saw a movie trailer for it recently, a MOVIE trailer!

Under the Dome, The Count of Monte Cristo, Atlas Shrugged. I wonder what other treasures I'll find when I deep a little deeper.

What are your Literary Dust Bunnies?

So my graphic isn't really a dust bunny. It should be scary to all that own books (or any paper for that matter). Laura M. Haight and recent discoveries in Eletromagnetic Mycelia reads like science fiction and I'm not smart enough to know real from fake. Head over and take a look at some of her other photographs. My question is, how were the books left alone long enough for the fungi to get so big?

I hope I'm protecting my treasures better!

Honestly, I thought "Life of Pi" was disappointing. You know when someone tells a story and then they say, "It didn't really happen" or "It was all a dream"? It was kind of like that. The ending was a cop-out. I saw the film trailer, though, and it looks good. I wonder if it'll be one of those rare times when the movie is actually better than the book.

Read The Count of Monte Cristo. It's been a while for me, but if memory serves, you won't be disappointed.

For me, it's probably a couple of history books that have been sitting there. I know I'll love them once I start. I just have to start.
